  • Mid Winter Break Absences Information

    Many of our families made plans to be gone for Mid Winter Vacation before the school strike in September and are unable to easily change those plans now that there will be school on February 17-19. I understand that our families did not have any control over the strike and should not be punished for the resulting schedule change, but I also cannot set aside Superintendent Procedures.

    Therefore, for the three days of school that were originally scheduled to be Mid Winter Vacation, students who complete a Pre-Arranged Absence Form (available in the Attendance Office) for missing those days, all teachers will set aside any classroom practices that would in any way reduce their grade or penalize them for these absences or at least provide students a reasonable way to make up the missed work. The absences will still count as unexcused absences in the system, but students will have full access to the points, assignments and assessments that they miss on those days.

    Please pick up and fill out the Pre-Arranged Absence Form as soon as possible to notify teachers of the absence. If you have any questions, please contact a Ballard administrator.
